Use the Storage Panel to manage your
primary backup media and mirrors. The Storage Panel is divided
horizontally into two sections. The top section shows your Backup Storage
Group and the bottom section shows your Mirror Group.
What is the Backup
The Backup Storage
Group contains a list of storage devices that hold your backup data. When
you ran the Backup for Workgroups setup program, you were asked to name your
initial storage location, so you should see at least one named storage location
at all times. Backup for Workgroups can span its backup data across
multiple devices. When you need to add storage capacity, you can add
additional storage devices and use the sum total capacity of all the drives.
What is the Mirror Group?
The Mirror Storage
Group contains a list of storage devices that hold a second copy of your backup data. When files are backed up they are stored on the drives listed in the
Storage Group. The mirror process the copies the backup files to the
Mirror group in order to make a second copy of the backup. The mirror copy
can be stored offsite to facilitate an offsite storage plan.
